It’s very evident that I am who I am today because of who my parents once were, and till this day remain to be – Romantics, hopeless romantics. After nights of asking them individually about how they met, and how they fell in love, It ended tonight with the outcome of me breaking down infront of my mom. 

It’s very evident that I am who I am today because of who my parents once were, and till this day remain to be – Romantics, hopeless romantics. After nights of asking them individually about how they met, and how they fell in love, It ended tonight with the outcome of me breaking down infront of my mom. 

Their story sure did have struggles, highs and lows, and nothing worthwhile comes easily, but each said one sentence that ushered a harmonic tune that filled me with warmth, and had my hands involuntary placed on my heart. I’m grateful to have them in my life, and I’m oh so appreciative of everything they have taught me. 

Did it give me hope for the future? Did it make me want to hold on to the emotions that I have towards you, and stand my ground? Did it clarify that when I really wanted something, regardless of how frustrating it may be to see the sands of time trickle down, to remember why I’ve held on for so long? Did it this, did it that, would it this, and would it that? Yes, it did this, and it did that, and it would do far more.

I recall so much of everything, so much of what we’ve done, talked about, discussed, and argued about. The drives that had us pouring our hearts out while we share intimate details about our fixture, internal, as well as external. We discovered each others insecurities, and at times admitted to them. We were beautiful, we were so much more than we comprehended. Awhile working on a floral illustration using poster colors during my exams, I wasn’t allowed to have my headphones in, the outcome? It was quite funny how I went over things, and the scenarios of our days together; from beginning to end, without pause. I caught myself laughing, I found a bittersweet taste on my lips. 

I don’t know what will happen, I don’t know how things will be, and how they will work out – but I really do hope that in the end, it’s going to be you and I

Much love,

Ali
